 "I will not give up the hunger strike, and I will not be imprisoned in this country," – Savchenko

Ukrainian pilot Nadiia Savchenko, kidnapped by the Russian Special Forces and illegally held in jail, declared that she will not give up the hunger strike and will not be imprisoned in Russia.

Russian journalist Viktoriya Ivleva wrote on Facebook, Censor.NET reports.

Valentina Cherevatenko, member of the Public Supervisory Commission of the Rostov region (Russia), and Vladimir Katasonov visited Nadiia Savchenko at 3rd Novocherkassk Predetention Center on March 12.

"I monitor my health. But let everyone know that I will not give up the hunger strike, and won't be imprisoned in this country," Cherevatenko quoted Savchenko.

The human rights activist has also said that Nadiia is in stable condition. "Nadiia drinks water. Her weight is stable. Maybe her body, which suffered from dehydration during a few days, has normalized the water balance... You could say that she is fine now, as for a person who is on a hunger strike," Cherevatenko informed.

However, Savchenko refused from medical examination and ultrasound scanning. Her body temperature and pressure, which are being read by the prison doctor twice a day, are normal. "The pressure and weight are stable. Nadiia does not complain of any pain. Force-feeding it is not on the agenda," Cherevatenko summarized.
